CW Arrowverse News

In our shortest episode to date, we sit down to talk a little about some things that are coming up on the CW Arrowverse shows. This includes some speculations about the Elseworld’s crossover event with Arrow, The Flash, Supergirl, etc. We know that we will also get an introduction to Ruby Rose’s Batwoman, so we talk a little about that.

We also talk about a potential cameo that may be in that series, so stay tuned! Elseworlds Crossover begins on December 9, 2018 on The Flash and will continue on each of the subsequent shows, so make sure to check that out!

Liz goes on a very short shark rant…obvs.

The Doctor is in

Episode 107 – The Doctor is IN

In this episode, The Doctor is IN! We sit down to discuss the Series 11 premier of Doctor Who and the full introduction to the new Doctor, played by Jodie Whitaker. This is historic, as this is the first time the Doctor has been portrayed by a woman!

The Doctor is in

The Doctor Is In

After watching the season premiere of Doctor Who on October 7th, we had to sit down and discuss our thoughts on the new Doctor and Jodie Whitaker. In the past, we have each had issue with the new actor taking on the role, before eventually (some seriously eventually) coming around and loving them. Did this follow suit for Jodie? Listen in to find out!

We also discuss what we thought about the first episode, and talk though the majority of the plot line and characters, including what will become the new companions.

Finally, we check in with the wardrobe department to talk about the Doctor’s new look, and how it compared to her previous counterparts.

Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life

Episode 106 – Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life

In this episode, we finally get back to Stars Hollow to review the Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life revival. If you missed our review of the original Gilmore Girls series, you can check that out here: http://www.nerdybitches.com/episode-96-gilmore-girls/

Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life

Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life

When we decided to cover Gilmore Girls for the podcast, we quickly realized that there was no way for us to cover all 8 seasons PLUS the four-part Netflix revival in one show, so we broke it down into the OG series and the revival. In this show, we hit all of the what the fuckery of it all, what our characters have been up to since the series ended, and what in the world is happening with them during this one arbitrary year.

The revival was broken down into four 90-minute shows, Winter, Spring, Summer, and Fall. We break down each episode to talk about what we liked, what we didn’t, and OMG WHAT IS HAPPENING moments. We follow Emily, Lorelei, and Rory Gilmore through a year to see if any of them have bothered to grow since the OG series ended.

One thing that we both really loved was the fact that this series was developed for Netflix, which meant they could get away with a lot of things that never would have flown with a network. This includes a few choice swear words, which when coming out of the mouth of Emily Gilmore is total life.

We also thoroughly enjoy the spiral downward of always-perfect Rory, who is just annoying in the way everything has always worked out for her.

We also get to check in on all of our favorite characters from the town.

 

Nerdy Bitches on the Town!

We have both been crazy busy preparing for some AWESOME conventions! Heather and Producer Craig just made it back from Salt Lake Fan X where Craig served as panelist and moderator for some great events and Heather had an awesome time covering the con!

Top Ten Best Parody Movies Ever

Episode 105 – Top Ten Best Parody Movies EVER

In this episode, Liz and Heather take a crack at listing the top ten best parody movies ever! This, of course, leads us to define what a parody movie is. We also give a little history on why we each think the movies on our respective lists deserve to be there. Enjoy!

par·o·dy (noun): an imitation of the style of a particular writer, artist, or genre with deliberate exaggeration for comic effect.

Top Ten Best Parody Movies Ever

Top Ten Best Parody Movies EVER

In deciding on our top ten list, Liz and Heather each created their Top 5 lists, which were kept secret, only running them through Producer Craig to make sure we did not have duplicates on the list. Here is a rundown of each list.

Episode 104 – Sheroes

In this episode, Heather and Liz sit down to discuss Sheroes: the women who inspired us as we grew up and influenced how we saw life. This term is also used to describe women who fight for women’s equality and rights. The term can be a little controversial, since the term “hero” is supposed to be gender neutral, but usually is geared towards men.

Sheroes

Who inspired us growing up? We talk about our direct sheores when we were kids, and some of the lack of female representation in the world (and some that were always there, but have just recently came to know about). Family, athletes, historical, and fictional figures all make the list.

Who inspires us NOW? Who are the women today who inspire us to work on making the world a better place? Public figures, media gurus, fictional women, and the youth of America.

Who are our historical female heroes? We each highlight a women in history who shaped the way we see the world, whether we knew their names or not. Hint: Heather and Liz both chose women from NASA’s history. Click HERE for the photo Heather references in the episode.

Episode 103 – Mainstreaming Nerd Culture Across Generations

In this episode, Liz and Heather discuss mainstreaming nerd culture across generations. Has nerdom become more acceptable in mainstream society? Are nerds the new hipsters or exclusive club? Will Liz and Heather ever choose to clean their respective homes if they can get away with it? Tune in to this week’s episode to find out!

Mainstreaming Nerd Culture Across Generations

Heather has returned from her adventures with several comic cons in California and has much to say about them, compared to our experiences with Comicpalooza. Both are looking forward to the upcoming Fandemic Tour in Houston, so hopefully Liz will be able to attend and report.

Liz and Heather debate whether or not NERD has actually gone mainstream, or if it is specific to certain fandoms/genres. They also discuss how this has changed over the generations and some of the potential jumping off points.

We also talk quite a lot about cleaning (or not), and other off-the-rails topics, as usual.

Black Panther

Episode 99 – Black Panther

In this episode, Liz and Heather took a break from Comicpalooza to sit down with blogger and lifestyle guru, Shasie (Shasie’s World) to talk ALL about Black Panther! We will be focusing on the character of Black Panther, not just the stand-alone movie, so we will be discussing Captain America Civil War, Black Panther, and Avengers: Infinity War with SPOILERS all over the place. Also, please excuse the audio. When recording quickly on-the-go, we had a few slip-ups!

Black Panther

Black Panther

Again, SPOILERS! We sat down with Shasie at Comicpalooza to talk all about the character, Black Panther, and will crossover into the different movies he has been in. We jump right on in and talk about all of the crazy things that happen in all of the movies and what is going to happen during the next group of movies that we know are coming.

We love Black Panther. Period. When he pops up in Civil War in the chase of Winter Soldier, we were surprised and excited. We talk about villians, and how well Marvel is doing at bringing in villians who you can somewhat relate to and can feel (especially Killmonger).

We do jump around to talk about some of the rest of the MCU and had a great time.

Gilmore Girls

Episode 96 – Gilmore Girls

On this episode, Liz and Heather finally tackle all seven original seasons of Gilmore Girls! During another one of our infamous fan-trades, Heather agreed to watch all seven seasons plus the revival. In return, Liz will be watching Game of Thrones, which will be discussed sometime during the summer. Probably. We are only tackling the original series in this episode, as also covering the revival would have put the show around 10 hours. The revival and our final-final thoughts will be released this summer. Stay tuned!!
